Seeing as he won the Dream WW GP i geuss he isn't unknown but less known. Marius Zaromskis is a bad ass. The way he ran through the GP was amazing. Hope to see this kid in the near future in the UFC

I have fought on a card with this guy Travis "The Terror" Clark. I can't find any Sherdog info on him but hes tuff. I was at his pro Boxing Debut and he blew his knee out. The doctor came in put his knee back into place and 30 seconds later he knocks the guy out. Hes undefeted in Pro Boxing Kick Boxing and MMA. Its so hard to decide if a guy can do well in the bigs until he is there but travis is for sure tuff and hits hard.

Phil Davis (4-0)

Penn State Division I wrestler that trains now in San Diego. I think he trains BJJ at the U of JJ and is also working on his boxing. I rolled with him once so I really hope he gets to the UFC. I also saw his last fight and he destroyed the guy.

Not really an unknown if u pay attention to TUF but never got another shot in the UFC, definitely would love to see Gerald Harris get another shot in the UFC, he's a mad tough very exciting middleweight. Think he has a great future. Amazing slams, very strong, very good wrestler. Hasn't lost since losing on the show, 11-2, only losses are a BS(in my opinion) split deciscion against Fabio Leopaldo, and a loss to Benji Radock after slamming the hell out of him. Not many exciting wrestlers in the MW division so I definitely think Gerald could make a name. Bring him back!

IFL guys that didn't come to the UFC but should have (not previously mentioned):
Chris Horodecki 13-1 (6 KOs 6 Decs)
Tim Kennedy 10-2 (losses to Mayhem Miller and Scott Smith)
Antonio McKee 22-3-2
John Gunderson 21-6
Delson Heleno 15-5
Chad Griggs 7-1
Deividas Taurosevicius 10-3

Not an IFL guy: Kyle Jensen 39-10-2 (since 2002) dudes problem is that when he fights "known" fighters is when he losses, but hopefully his luck has changed as he just TKOed Rich Clementi (injury broken clavicle)

Agree with all of those plus I would include Jamal who was mentioned earlier. I would also like Antoine Britt and Gerald Harris, though they were on TUF for some time. Also Dan Hornbuckle (Despite being in Sengoku I think)
